Watch Today’s Daily Briefing Feat. Levy’s Recurring Battle Against The Y Word Plus Rambo & Lingard
By Harry Hotspur -

The club are involving themselves in censorship again, some fans might recall that THFC invited the Metropolitan Police into the old stadium and arrests were made of individuals using the Y word. The Crown Prosecution Service refused to prosecute. Yet still this case is pursued. Graham Roberts spoke about players being to blame, gawd bless him. Elsewhere, ESPN ask if might Jesse Lingard be a good fit for Spurs? As ever, your thoughts on this briefing and others are most welcome!

Would they wait until the end of Jan.to see whether Conte walks after not being backed?

Just another day in ex FC. Why these lunatics don’t mention Spam and Chelsea etc using the term in an actual hateful way is twisted.

They finally shot Ole then. It’s all done by the numbers which is why it’s took this long. In any genuine situation he would have been gone at the final whilste of the Liverpool match.
Mancini primed for the WWE turn around maybe.

I think I read that they will appoint an interim manager. I wonder if that signals they are prepared to wait until the end of the season as there probably isn’t much choice out there. Maybe, they think they can lure Poch then. Hasn’t Mancini’s halo slipped a bit with Italy’s recent performances? They are not even sure to qualify for the World Cup.

If as a manager you have your wits about you then you do not enter into any lengthy agreement with the snake oil salesman know as D. (for dodgy) Levy esquire. I also hope that Conte got all the vague promises put into writing in the contract, from the words that likely gushed from Levy’s mouth (via forked tongue), about being backed to the tune of many millions, and about top quality players being targeted instead of cheap chumps and kids.
It’s a miracle that Levy found another manager tbh. I sincerely hope the little scoundrel has learned from his catalogue of lies and errors over the last decade or so, and is set to eat a massive slice of humble pie and mend his almost criminal ways. I’ll believe it when it happens.

Conte could av had the Utd job, but he took a quick buck. He will regret that soon enough.

I’m surprised he jumped when he did tbh, Levy must have promised the earth, hope he got it in writing.

I notice Glenda has just ‘gone rogue’ and said that Pochettino should have been backed, but that Conte is a great choice. I doubt Glen will be a regular recipient of paycheques from Shopping Centre FC either…

I was concerned that Conte was only given an eighteen month contract but it appears that during HH’s conversation with Romano that it was more at Conte’s insistence so that he could be reassured that Levy would keep whatever promises he had made him in the way of transfer funds. One thing is for sure, Conte will not hang around if he is not backed. He left Inter after they had won the Scudetto for that reason.
Glenda also criticised Levy for not backing him when he was manager. The MM, fans pundits and objective observers have got Levy’s number at last.

The objective observers seemed to have a constant blind spot to the truth, for well over a decade. Paying off journalists and carrying out a scripted ‘interview’ every three years is one thing thing. Convincing outsiders to not critique your running of the club complete with the questions about massive failure on the pitch, is quite another…

Correct H, something must have happened with Graham Roberts as today (and for the rest of the season) he can be found at the La Royale Banqueting Suite on the High Road for ‘Matchday with Legends. Free pre-match entertainment chat and licensed bar’ The other ‘legends’ who perhaps have also been cast aside by levy are Mark Falco, Paul Miller and Mike Hazard.

Levy wants no vestige of the WHL era Spurs hanging around, which is pretty much the whole of our existence since 1882 – 2018. No room for nostalgia unless it has the shopping centre as it’s backdrop, so slim pickings there!! 🤔 😂

So Daniel is is done with the ‘Y’ word business is he? Most likely sees it as an affront to the wokism that pervades all consumerism these days. Educate people as to the context in which the Spurs support use it, show some respect for the club’s identity.

But no, it must be stamped out, yet he wasn’t particularly bothered until the new stadium came onto the horizon.

I can see why he sees it as an issue from a marketing perspective, but then who ever said football clubs should ever be homogeneous, bland, plastic and corporate shells? Not the fans, who provide 85% of your cashflow. It’s another example of ENIC’s disgraceful and out of touch handling of running the club.

So what’s new? 🤔

If Conte rates Lingard I’d be happy with this deal now…because we are DESPERATE for goals from midfield.

I know a lot of fans have been snobby about us being above his level in the past but right now we have about eight midfielders with about one goal in the league each in the last six months – pathetic.

He’s a player always looking to score and isn’t afraid to have a crack – and he’s done it in the PL for a while. If there’s a better no-brainer of a scoring midfielder signing from the PL go get them instead, but otherwise Lingard would be a decent stop gap for right now.

He also works hard and scores goals after coming on as a sub – again, the only player who ever seems to regularly score as a sub is Son if he hasn’t started. Maybe Lo Celso or Moura once in a blue moon? If he can be a scoring sub in some games that’s priceless for us.

I posted this on an earlier blog.

I’ve said before I have never been a great lover of Lingard,but at 10M he does represent good value for money.He’s English and knows the PL and we need to shift deadwood ,a lot of whom are English.
The only snag might be his wage demands,but working with Conte could convince him to compromise.

Just reproducing my earlier post as I was chastised by Archibald &Crooks Snide Chump for posting this on an earlier blog as to the value of Harry Winks which is of no interest to me as he should be moved on.

Dear H
I don’t want to sound like your groupie but I was very appreciative of your blog today.
Although I am Church of England by faith because my mother was, my father was Jewish. To his absolute horror, as he himself was a slight anti Semite, I went to Israel at the age of eighteen with a friend to work on a kibbutz in 1972 for seven months, leaving Israel just before the Yom Kippur war in 1973. It was a great experience and I could relate a lot of stories about my time working mainly in the dairy there, amongst other jobs there but I digress. There was a post by someone last week whom I suspect was a WHU fan who stated that Israel “had murdered thousands of Palestinians”. I found this an offensive and totally untrue statement and I answered this vile accusation. I was then advised not to write about non-football matters and I received a copious amount of down ticks which surprised me on a THFC blog. You made a good point that the East End Jews were mainly responsible for defeating Mosely and when I used to hear Yid army being chanted around the old White Hart Lane, it made me feel proud. The rise of anti Semitism in Europe and Britain makes me feel sick. I could write about this all day but during my travels throughout most of Israel, I never heard an Arab say a good word about the Jews during many conversations, and they all espoused the same mantra that they would eventually throw the Jewish people out of Palestine.
I think that one of the great attributes of the Jewish faith is that they believe in the sanctity of life unlike many of their oppressors and opponents. It never ceases to amaze me how many Christians are completely unaware that Jesus was a Jew.
Just to end my diatribe, for those of you who have ever watched Curb your Enthusiasm, the show is one of the best examples of a religion taking the p*** out of itself and being very funny into the bargain, the last episode was a humdinger!

I agree that this series has been rather slow but the last episode was brilliant. Suzie sewing the Star of David onto the klansman’s robe was hilarious.
